This season, with the hedge between the properties on the south side and the sad sack larch next door both gone, it’s opened up enough sun for tomatoes, and that experiment was a great success. I figure if there is enough sun for tomatoes there is going to be enough sun for garlic too. With that in mind, today I expanded the new flower garden up front by the book box, giving me enough room to plant plenty enough garlic to keep us happy next year.
Last week, Tuffy P came home with some garlic for planting. I don’t know what variety it is. However, it even came with handy-dandy fool-proof instructions.
How could I go wrong? I didn’t think I was going to be able to do this today because it was drizzling a bit earlier this morning, but that really didn’t amount to enough rain to wet the ground. Now it’s turned into a lovely sunny afternoon. Perfect.
